“We are thrilled to partner with BBC Learning to help us continue to improve our curriculum and create new real-world, relevant, and job related learning experiences for the students we serve,” said Dr. Vernon Johnson, President and CEO of Accelerate Learning. “BBC programs such as Planet Earth, Africa and Life have been the gold-standard for over a decade in captivating audiences and bringing us the ability to see into unknown and sometimes undiscovered worlds. Having the ability to incorporate the world-class programming and educational assets of BBC Learning into our curriculum, we can help students make real-world connections to and deepen their understanding of STEM, why it matters, and most importantly deliver a love of science.”
Incubated at Rice University and developed by Accelerate Learning, STEMscopes PreK-12 is built from the ground up to address the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and today’s state standards. It combines an award-winning digital curriculum, supplemental print materials, and ready-made exploration kits with a 24/7 professional development portal to support and propel student and teacher success. STEMscopes can be implemented in traditional, blended, and 1:1 classrooms as a core or supplementary science curriculum. Independent studies show that schools who use STEMscopes in the classroom have experienced double digital increases in student passing rates on science assessments.
